The clash between the bitter rivals is the highlight - and only all-Premier League tie - of the last-64 draw which was made on Sunday afternoon at Wembley.

Fellow top-flight big guns Arsenal and Chelsea were granted home ties against Leeds and Ipswich respectively.

The two non-league teams already through to round three were both handed away ties, with York travelling to Premier League Bolton after their win at Darlington and Huddersfield the destination for Dover, conquerors of Aldershot.

Three other teams from outside the Football League took their places in the draw with their second-round ties yet to be decided.

FC United of Manchester will host Portsmouth if they come through their replay against Brighton, while Crawley will tackle Swindon once more for the right to take on Derby.

Droylsden, of the Blue Square Bet North Division, face League One Leyton Orient on Monday night with a trip to Norwich the prize for the winners.

The ties will be played over the weekend of January 8-9.
